I'd like to call this Cruz guy fascist, even Hitlerian. But as Dean says in his blog, "The world is too small for hate." So I won't.

UPDATE:

Manuel L. Quezon III has written a beautiful rebuttal in his Philippine Daily Inquirer column, aptly titled "The Grand Inquisitor," which -- if you know your world literature -- is a famous chapter from Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel The Brothers Karamazov. The story is about a Grand Inquisitor -- a holy position for a priest in-charge of ferreting out non-Christians in the dark days of the Spanish Inquisition -- who knowingly tortures the Christ for heresy.
